I loaded CS:GO and tried to play them on both laptops. The 13" performed much better and relatively smooth. The frame rate was probably 25-30. The 15" was very glitchy and not playable at all. The frame rate was probably 1 fps or less. I don't get it. Processing power and graphics is better in the 15". Did the Nvidia graphics processor kick in? Is there a website to run cpu/gpu benchmarks for macs? or do i need to download an app?
